  • 5. Created by Susan Knisely Last Updated 6/5/2013CC BY-NC 3.0 Page 5Section II: Using Your NOOK Color with OverDriveThere are two methods of getting OverDrive eBooks onto your NOOK Color: Method 1 requires you to download an OverDrive eBook to your desktop orlaptop computer and then transfer it to your NOOK Color using Adobe DigitalEditions (ADE) software. Method 2 involves downloading and installing the OverDrive Media Console(OMC) app directly on your NOOK Color and then checking out anddownloading OverDrive eBooks directly through the app. This method requiresan active Wi-Fi connection.Regardless of which method you use, the first time you download an Adobe DRM-protected eBook from OverDrive to a new computer or device, you will be prompted toauthorize that computer/device with an Adobe ID. For this reason, creating a freeAdobe ID for yourself prior to downloading your first eBook is highly recommended!How to Create an Adobe ID:1. Go to http://www.adobe.com2. Click on the “Sign in” link in the upper-right corner of the page.3. Click on “Don’t have an Adobe ID?”4. Fill in the required fields and click “Create.”If you plan to access your OverDrive eBook on more than one device during thecheckout period (e.g. your computer, your NOOK Color, and your smartphone) be sureto authorize each computer/device with the same Adobe ID. You may authorize up to6 computers and / or devices with the same ID.A Note About File Types:OverDrive eBooks are available in the following six formats:1. Kindle2. Adobe EPUB3. Adobe PDF4. Open EPUB5. Open PDF6. OverDrive READ (New)Here’s a rundown of what formats work in what situations: Kindle eBooks can ONLY be read on Kindles and, in some cases, on free Kindlereading apps. The takeaway for NOOK Color users? Don’t accidently checkout theKindle version of a book!
  • 6. Created by Susan Knisely Last Updated 6/5/2013CC BY-NC 3.0 Page 6 Both Adobe and Open EPUB eBooks can be downloaded directly to a NOOK Colorvia the OverDrive Media Console app.* Adobe EPUB, Open EPUB, Adobe PDF, and Open PDF eBooks can ALL bedownloaded to a computer and transferred to a NOOK Color using Adobe DigitalEditions.* OverDrive READ eBooks can be opened and read in a modern web browser suchas Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer 10.*For those of you who are curious, the main difference between Adobe vs. Open eBooks is thatAdobe eBooks are protected with Adobe DRM, whereas Open eBooks aren’t. Due to this distinctionthe download process for Adobe vs. Open eBooks differs slightly. Also worth noting – althoughpatrons have more freedom in what they can do with an unprotected eBook, Open eBooks can’t bechecked in early since that is a function of the DRM. The vast majority of OverDrive’s EPUB and PDFeBooks are protected by Adobe DRM.Now on to the two main download methods!Method 1: Using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) to Get OverDrive eBooks ontoyour NOOK ColorHow to Download Adobe Digital Editions:The first thing you need to do is download Adobe Digital Editions to your Windows orMac computer. You will only need to do this one time.To download Adobe Digital Editions:1. Go to http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions.html and click on the“Download now” link.2. Under ‘Adobe Digital Editions 2.0 Installers,’ click the Macintosh or Windows linkto download the correct installer.3.

Scan down a bit further and there are links you can click on if you’d prefer to browsecontent by categories such as All Fiction, All Nonfiction, New eBooks, Most Downloaded,etc.The screenshot below shows the result list I retrieved when I clicked on the “All Fiction”link under eBook Fiction.If you’re having trouble finding a title that’s not already checked out, click on the blue“Show me only titles with copies available” button.
